With over 40 years of experience, Michael Reynolds has developed a ‘living' home that heats and cools itself passively, harvests/treats/ and reuses its water four times, collects its own electricity, and grows its own food. The Global Model, which incorporates the double greenhouse, is the culmination of years of experimenting and building with recycled materials. These booklets have been put together with input from the Earthship crew, who have built hundreds of these homes around the world.
